Former Roc-A-Fella Co-Founder Kareem “Biggs” Burke Facing Up to 40 Years In Prison After Pleading Guilty To Federal Drug Charges

 

One of the men who helped start Roc-A-Fella Records along with Dame Dash and Jay-Z could be spending the next 40 years in a federal prison.

 

Kareem “Biggs” Burke pleaded guilty Thursday [March 15] to a single federal count of conspiracy to distribute, and to possess with intent to distribute more than 100 kilos of weed according to NorthJersey.com.


He entered the plea in Manhattan before U.S. District Judge Laura Taylor Swain.


Burke was nabbed after an 18-month investigation dubbed "Operation Green Venom." He, along with 50 others who were also arrested, was involved in a massive drug smuggling ring that distributed weed from Florida to New York.


The ring supplied the drugs to customers in New Jersey and New York.


Burke faces a minimum of five years in prison and up to a maximum 40 years when he is sentenced May 18. He also has to give up $660,000, his home, $15,000 in cash that was seized from his home when he was arrested in 2010, and his 2010 BMW.

it's not cause it just weed. it's because people sell it and make money tax free. that's what it's all about people TAX. Just like the mafia, you gotta pay the DON. when you don't pay, you're made an example of in front of your peers, friends and fam. No mercy. Welcome to the Nu America. Technology and money is your governments God and if you don't fall somewhere in that hierarchy then you're just food for the prison system to swallow.

As much as it for weed its for operating a business without proper registration and not paying taxes for millions of dollars. You can't open a store without registering your company.
